Seaplane emergency landing
A seaplane was forced to make an emergency landing at Glasgow Airport after part of it broke off and landed amid houses, the Sunday Mail reports. No one was hurt when one of the Cessna 208's rudders fell into a garden after the plane took off from the Clyde.
The aircraft is one of two seaplanes operating routes between Glasgow, Oban and Tobermory on Mull. It was flying from Glasgow Science Centre near the city centre to Loch Lomond but diverted to Glasgow Airport after the rudder fell off.
Aviation expert Jim Ferguson told the newspaper: ‘The rudder could easily have caused death or serious injury if it had hit a person or a car.’ Loch Lomond Seaplanes said: ‘It did not affect the safety and handling of the aircraft.’
